Bibbys Farm has many volunteers and they have run the site since it first opened.
As a part of this, we can now offer a formalised way of volunteering as a part of your D-of-E Gold Residential.
You will join us for the week of the 8th July 2024 to at least the 14th July. This is a Monday to Sunday.
Along with others, you will stay in our Bunkhouse and all your food and drink is included. Living with the rest of the team is all a part of the experience and it will include playing your part in cooking and cleaning as well as project work each day.
On the Saturday, we are also hosting our annual Music Festival. In return for your hard work, we’ll provide you with a free Backstage Pass to join the Festival as one of our Crew helping with the run-up to the event and the event itself.
Book using the form below.
Only open to those over 18 years of age.
A current, valid, enhanced DBS will be required. We can process this for you if you don’t have one. Make sure you apply in time to get this done.
Here’s the detail from D-of-E about residentials:
For your Residential section you need to undertake a shared activity or specific course with people you don’t know, in a residential setting away from home and in an unfamiliar environment. Evenings are often as much a part of the experience as daytime activities.
This section offers a high degree of flexibility but it must be done with an organised group, registered charity or Approved Activity Provider. You must join it individually and not with an existing group of friends or as part of a school or youth group trip. You will be staying away – anything from an activity centre or camp to a boat or barge – but you cannot stay with friends or relatives.
There are no age restrictions on who you can do your residential activity with, for example, a conservation project has volunteers of all ages on it – you may even be the only person under 25 or doing your DofE.
Your activity can be anything that provides you with an opportunity for broadening your interests and experiences. It is ideal for trying something new or it can be related to existing interests or activities followed in other sections of your DofE programme.
